Post-Operative Care - Bone Grafting
After Bone Grafting
- You may find some small granules in your mouth for the first several days. Do not be alarmed by these. It's normal to have some of them come out of the graft site and into your mouth.
- Do not vigorously rinse or spit for 3-5 days.
- Do not apply pressure with your tongue or fingers to the grafted area, as the material is movable during the initial healing.
- Do not lift or pull on the lip to look at the sutures. This can actually cause damage to the wound site and tear the sutures.
First Day: Let The Blood Clot Stabilize, Do Not Even Rinse Your Mouth.
